Antonio Sabato Jr. will be competing on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.

Although the official season 19 cast won't be announced until next week, a new report claims soap star Sabato will be one of the celebrities featured on the show's upcoming installment.

On Aug. 27, E! News confirmed Sabato had been added to the cast, noting that ABC, the network behind the long-running reality competition, "doesn't comment on casting rumors."

After moving to the United States from Italy, Sabato gained fame as a model for Calvin Klein. From there, Sabato landed a role on General Hospital, as well as several television roles in shows, such as, Melrose Place, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Rizzoli & Isles.

In Aug. 2009, Sabato starred in his own dating reality show on VH1 titled My Antonio. He also appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap in 2012.

It was announced that his mother would be participating in the show, and that his ex-wife would be competing for his love in the show.

One person who has been officially confirmed for the show is Julianne Hough, who will return to the series as the fourth judge on season 19.

Of her return, Hough told E! News, "I'm so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis. I've always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I'm acting, dancing or singing, and I'm thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits."

The entire cast will be revealed on Good Morning America on Sept. 4.

Dancing With The Stars season 19 premieres on ABC on Sept. 15 at 8 p.m.
